Northern Tasmanian sides have two more national representatives courtesy of netball pair Hayley McDougall and Hannah Lenthall.
The prominent duo, who play for Cavaliers and Northern Hawks respectively, have been named in the Australian 19-and-under squad for a training camp scheduled to be conducted later this year.
The pair join 17-and-under selections Macy Goninon (Devon) and Grace Pullen (Karana) in the national squads, named earlier this week by Netball Australia.

McDougall, originally a star for North-West coast outfit Devon, made the switch to the Cavaliers this season but it hasn't been a smooth ride, recently returning from a four-week absence due to injury.
She was the only Tasmanian selected in last season's under-19 national pathway but Lenthall joins her this season, making the step up from under 17s.
The goal defence has regularly impressed her coaches this season, making her mark in her first full opens season.
Due to the ongoing national situation, squad selection was done collaboratively with national selectors and state bodies with under-17 and 19 coach Michelle Wilkins singing the squad's praise.
"Selection of these squads wasn't an easy process due to the depth of talent we have coming through our system, she said.
"While it has been a challenging year, it is our priority to ensure we are constantly nurturing and developing the talent coming through the Netball Australia pathway and we look forward to bringing everyone together later in the year for our training camps."
